"Doctor Mark Kranhuim has tended to the wounded on numerous assignments. His sound knowledge of medicine is believed to be responsible for bringing back two members from the dead. However, a wandering right eye has hindered any improvement to his shooting ability." - Jagged Alliance
"After over a decade of valiant service, Needle failed his annual physical and was forced into early retirement. Regrettably, further deterioration of Dr. Mark Kranhium's wandering right eye had rendered him a danger to his squad. Presently he holds a part-time position with the New York City Coroner's office working the graveyard shift as a Coroner." - Jagged Alliance 2 Alumni Gallery
